Transcript of World War 1

World War One started with an unprovoked assassination. On the 28th of June 1914, a Serbian Nationalist named Gavrilo Princip killed Franz Ferdinand and his wife during an inspection of the Austro-Hungarian troops. Austria found out it was Serbia and declared war. This started an outbreak, which led to the beginning of World War One.
Australia became part of this war because of Britain. They are Australia’s mother country that means since Britain joined the war Australia will help. Some foolish men also thought that it was their chance to go on adventures and become heroes.
The Entente Powers (Good) advanced their position in The Great War, which led to the final stages of the conflict. The Central Powers (Bad) started to surrender, country by country, until in 1918, November 9th when an armistice was signed. This officially brought the First World War to an end.

World War One was both a devastating and hopeful time for the world. Nicknamed ‘The Great War’ people thought that this war would end all wars. World War One is the most climatic conflict of the ages.
World War One was a hectic event, which took place in many places, especially places that are populated. This called many people to migrate to Australia. But they did not leave their culture behind. Emigrants brought their own culture to Australia; they brought food and started businesses. This made up Australia’s multi-cultural community.
Trench Warfare
Trench Warfare was a major way of battle during the Great War. Soldiers would dig trenches in the ground and use that as cover. They used machine guns and trench mortars.
They used barb wired fences as barriers and and sandbags as cover.

One of the major battles of WWI in Trench Warfare was 'The Battle of Somme'.
It started on the 1st of July 1916 and didn't end until November that year. The British suffered 240,000 casualties including 60,000 on the first day of the war. The French lost 200,000 and the Germans lost 500,000 men.
